Yes, this is the idea, I have to see if I'm capable to do it, and, of
course, the time that I have ;-)
The only driver I have ever written is for a very simple parallel port
device. I took a look at the dvb-usb infrastructure and it seems simple
enough to fill-in-the-blanks once I decipher the documentation they sent me.

I thought that was not the case, since the only reference I found on
this device is in the message I replied to, which states that "the
vendor has no interest in linux".
That's why I contacted them, to discover that it simply is not true.
